Alice in Chains guitarist Jerry Cantrell has found a unique use for his MTV Award. The guitarist recently posted a photograph on Facebook of the iconic spaceman statue doubling as a toilet roll holder along with the following message:
"This #MTV Video Music Award doubles as a toilet paper dispenser.#dualpurpose #interiordecorating at #jerryshouse #tbt"
The award was given to Alice in Chains in 1993 for "Would?" which won in the Best Video From a Film category.
In a recent interview, Cantrell spoke about the troubles faced by young bands in the music industry. The guitarist noted that making it in the music industry is become an increasing financial burden for young acts:
"Music is not worth anything anymore, financially it's not. And it takes money to do it, it really does. If there's not any care or support being put into every crop, there's less and less every year, you're gonna get a sh-ttier, smaller crop every time. You got the crappier seed with a sh-t farmer - you're gonna get a smaller yield every season and that seems to be, to me, what's going on, and it's unfortunate man."
